London (AFP) – Chelsea manager Antonio Conte said Thursday he had gained “inspiration” from meeting with England rugby coach Eddie Jones and experiencing the Australian’s “winning” mentality at first hand.

The Italian clearly knows something about winning himself, having revived Chelsea’s fortunes since his pre-season arrival at Stamford Bridge to the extent that the Blues head into this weekend’s Premier League fixtures eight points clear at the top of the table.

London (AFP) – England football manager Gareth Southgate said it had been “fascinating” to spend time with Eddie Jones as a rival rugby coach compared the Australian to legendary football manager Brian Clough.

The England rugby union team are on a national record 15-match winning streak heading into their Six Nations clash against Wales on Saturday, with 14 of those wins coming since Jones took over following the team’s first-round exit on home soil at the 2015 World Cup.
